President James Pallotta: Roma can still win the Scudetto

Roma president James Pallotta was interviewed by Il Corriere dello Sport in today’s edition of the newspaper:

“We leave Munich with belief; the team gave their reply by showing what they are capable of. Our future is now in our own hands and I believe we can win the Scudetto. In fact, I’m convinced we can win it. Why shouldn’t we? We’ve got a strong squad and I have no doubts about our quality. We may be second and three points behind Juve, but we can recover that. We’re aiming to play a great season, getting back to winning ways against Torino on Sunday. I’ve got great faith in Roma. The Champions League? I’m certain we can go through, but it’s not going to be easy in Russia. The Champions League means a lot to us because it’s a great competition, but the league comes first.”
